Excitation and electrical breakdown of solid insulators

  • A. A. Vorob'ev


Electrical breakdown of solid insulators is a complex process which is governed at every moment by many simultaneous excitation and relaxation effects in the investigated material, by electrotransport in the electron and ion subsystems, and by the formation of a plasma and its explosive action resulting in fracture of the sample.
